Gauteng Meet with the Prings

Unread postby TheunsH » Mon Jul 04, 2011 1:39 pm

As you may know, the Prings (Dave and Lorraine) are here in SA again! :clap: :clap:

How about another meet with them here in Gauteng. Two years ago we had a winner of a meet. On Saturday (23 July 2011) they will be available. We thought a braai at Rietvlei should be great. If Rietvlei is fine, we could meet at 12:00 and get the ball rolling! :thumbs_up:

Please post your suggestions here!

Regards.

Ai Oom, why don't we sommer camp at Rietvlei? It is going to be too cold to braai on open plains next to water... Brrrrrrrr.


Why don't we rather opt for a place like Monte Casino, with a nice cozy restaurant, low light from candles, yummy food, service, luxury??


(Never been to MC - now's my chance!). :twisted:


C'mon, Gauteng mites, a mini-meet is on the cards! It could also be a Pink one... :roll:

Wish we could be there but as some of you know we'll be in UK then to help my parents celebrate their Diamond Anniversary on 21st July.

Will certainly raise a glass or two from there to say Happy Birthday to Dave.

Wish you all a great meet.

Regards Janice

That sounds like a great idea... So whether it is Rietvlei or Monte we'll be there! Elzet if it turns out to be Rietvlei we can always go to Monte another day! :lol:

Jan&Dave, you'll be sorely missed, but enjoy, enjoy, enjoy your very special event. :shock: Wow, give your parents a medallion on my behalf - they deserve it. :wink: :twisted: :lol:

Bosbaba-kie, so happy to see that you and the rest of the Bossies will join us, irrespective of where it is happening. :dance: :dance: (Shall I book a place at the Spa for us in the interim? To conclude a delightful evening by candle light?) :whistle:


-----

Delightful to see the pink/purple brigade (ok, some members) might join us too. Fluts. :clap: :clap: (I must say, pink is absolutely not my fav' colour, but hey, I'm not a member of the brigade...). (Are you leaving that Bugger Hunny behind and joining us in the Spa afterwards?) :whistle:

So Ndloti and RT, what say you? And all the other mites from Gautvol? :huh: :huh:

Goooood :dance: :dance: , it seems that Hunny Buggergy has opted to go and look for Exie No. 4 - he's sommer going to skip the whole procedure of Exie No. 3. Don't worry, he'll thank me one day for that. :tongue: :lol:

Wow, I see this meet is starting to "rocket" now! :lol:

I had a pm or two with Mads about Rietvlei. (Thank you Mads, you are a star! :clap: :clap: ) Maybe we can have the lapa at Rietvlei for the braai and after that a late afternoon game drive on the open vehicle for those who are interested! :thumbs_up: It cost R135 per person for the game drive...minimum 10, maximum 20 people.

I will let you know as soon as I receive more details! :thumbs_up:

Hi there mighty Mites!

I received some good news from Mads. We can have the lapa at Rietvlei for free if we book the game drive as well (R135 per person). In such a case we only have to be out at midnight! :twisted:

If we don't take the drive, we can braai/picnic at the picnic spot and have to be out of the park at 18:00.

I'm off to Kruger on Saturday (9 July) for a week ( :dance: :dance: :dance: ) and must know within the next day or so whether we are going to be enough Mites to book the drive and lapa or not. If you feel that a meet at a restaurant is a better option, please post your suggestions here.

Thanks! :thumbs_up:
